Leon Islis leading the cave.
This is the route at the far end of the cave, immediately behind the flake. There are a lot of good rests and this is quite mild for the area.
A standard rack up to #3 Camalot will do.
Scott Drum on the lead.
Inside the cave. Turned out to be a lot of bird-po...

A nice route with cool location. There is a fair amount of bird poo on the upper two thirds of the route. However, this does not make it a crappy route....

Well poot, Jared. The webbing on the new anchors is now covered with bird shit. A proactive person may wish to change the acid soaked webbing with chains at some point.

This one topped out. Much harder climbing higher up. Old school 5.10.

Are there supposed to be anchors at the top for this climb? Or do you just traverse right on bird-shit ledge to the anchors for the Cave Route (10a)?
I traversed right and it kind of sucked, especially for my girlfriend who was looking at a nice swing along the poopy ledge if she slipped. Great way to learn to chimney!

I just went to the achor for the Cave Route, and I would say it was a cruise, but that traverse to the anchor was a little spicy, not hard, but a slip up on that dirty rock would have hurt more than a little bit.
I think it would make a great first lead.

If you continue up the steep crack where it narrows to where you can chimney, there is a ledge with two sets of anchors, one in front of you (old angles) and the one behind you is a new anchor.
